How do you bookmark on a touch?

Sometimes when I'm reading I want to go back and read a bit earlier or skip to the end then back again.

I can sort of do this by stopping at a new chapter writing the chapter number down then going back afterwards but I'm used to the booken where I could drop a bookmark in then go to a bookmark.

Thanks John

You could use the Touch's highlighting feature to simulate a bookmark. Simply press a word, then, when the selection handles appear use them to extend the selection if you wish and then tap the pencil icon at the bottom of screen. To navigate to a highlight, tap the center of the screen which will bring up the Reading menu then select Highlights in the Options menu (four stacked lines). Finally, select the highlight you want to go to.

If I touch lightly then it turns the page. If I touch and hold my finger on the word then I get a dictionary icon at the bottom together with an X.

I'm not seeing a selection handle.

Thanks John

Currently, highlighting only works on EPUBs purchased from Kobo. The Kobo developers are working on adding this feature to non-Kobo EPUBs.

I only have none drm epub books from Belgrave House on there at the moment.

I don't think Kobo carry the sort of non DRM books I'm interested in.

So it would appear this is not possible.

Thanks John
